Most Successful Way to Quit Smoking? Best Stop Smoking…

Best Stop Smoking Strategies and Successful Ways or Techniques Used to Stop Smoking For Good Can Be Discussed in the Comments Section…

By the way, we appreciate your continued participation in the discussion!

I’ve known a few people who have quit smoking. I’ve known many more who have “thought” about quitting smoking but never actually stopped the habit/addiction.  Now that I think of it, I’ve know people who have talked about quitting smoking for over ten years.  The fact that nicotine is an addictive substance probably illustrates best why this is true.

Successful Stop Smoking Idea: Your Health

I’ve know several women who, once learn they are pregnant, quit smoking cold turkey. I mean, done… When I think about this idea I try to understand the thinking that must go on in this situation.  Do mothers feel that the health of their baby is more important than a cigarette?  What does that say for the person who is quitting and how they feel about their own health?  I would think that an overall awareness of your health and maybe a more grateful approach to health could aid a successful drive to quit smoking for good.

Pregnant Women and Smoking

Is it really a health issue at all that keeps expecting mothers from smoking? Maybe it is societal pressure.  Don’t get me wrong here folks, I think it is great that new or expecting mothers choose to be smoke free, I just find it fascinating that someone who may have been wanting to quit for years, just quits cold turkey upon learning of their pregnancy.

Where are all of the comments?
Surely someone has stopped smoking successfully!

I, too, quit smoking when I was pregnant (because my hormones changed & cigarettes tasted NASTY…..REAL NASTY…TERRIBLE).

I picked up that bad habit 5 years later (before I even KNEW how BAD cigarettes were for our health… the early 1970’s).

I WANT to find out what is MOST successful AGAIN. I’m almost 60 now. Have been smoking MOST of my life.

Cold-turkey does NOT work (for me). I feel like a DEAD turkey jumping around like my head’s just been chopped off when I stop smoking! No kidding! I pace the floors constantly when I quit! Makes me a nervous wreck! Can’t work. Can’t do ANYTHING.

They won’t make a very, very, very LIGHT cigarette (to wean us off of the terrible addiction). That would make too much sense. I’ve been smoking ULTRA LIGHT Carltons for decades now.

If you ARE a smoker & you know SOMEONE who quit, please post their success story. Maybe ex-smokers aren’t searching the internet any longer (like current smokers are).

Thanks for your posts!!!

Well I’ve mentioned one way I’ve seen work… But it won’t work for everyone, certainly not men. Getting pregnant has been the most successful means of kicking the smoking habit for good. But I know there are more. I have a nephew that smokes and I’m sending him a link to this post in a couple months, I appreciate any comments.
